MDI supported the implementation of participatory budgeting (OmaStadi) by facilitating resident workshops on Zoom. These “Teemaraksa” workshops brought together proposals from citizens around the city on the same theme, which then were discussed with an expert in the field. The aim of the thematic workshop was for experts and citizens to work together to finalise the proposals. Together with city employees, MDI facilitated virtual workshops. MDI also consulted the client on the content and technology of the workshops and was responsible for the technical implementation of the virtual workshops.
